PHI DATA SECURITY NECESSITIES
HIPAA Compliant Website Guidelines
HIPAA compliant eCommerce is relatively complicated due to ever-evolving HIPAA requirements and the fact that these rules span the technical and the data side of HIPAA eCommerce platforms. It also includes the internal business processes, requiring constant monitoring and validation to ensure the application complies with HIPAA guidelines.
As a result, there are consistent and never-ending auditing requirements to adjust and fine-tune a HIPAA compliant eCommerce application. The best practices include periodic penetration tests, white-hat hacking, and other forms of testing the software for vulnerabilities. You should also have security audits testing the application and infrastructure to ensure that the data is encrypted at rest. Regulations also require some form of validation process for auditing and reviewing what people have access to.
